To test the AZZA Hurrican 2000, temperatures will be recorded for the CPU, GPU, chipset, hard drives, and the overall system temperature during load and idle phases. Load will be simulated by Prime95 small FFTs and HD Tune for one hour with maximum temperatures recorded by RealTemp. The GPU load will be the maximum value recorded by Catalyst Control Center after five loops of 3DMark06’s Canyon Flight test. Each case is tested as is from the factory, including the fan configuration. As stated earlier, the fan configuration for the Hurrican 2000 is 2x120mm front intake, 2x230mm top exhaust, 2x230mm side intake, 1x120mm rear exhaust and 1x120mm behind the CPU.

- Case: AZZA Hurrican 2000
These results here give a clear picture of exactly what this case is capable of. The eight included fans operate silently for the most part - they get the job done effectively, despite spinning rather slowly. The Hurrican 2000 achieved temperatures below the average of the comparisons, which is a strong result since as a full tower case, the Hurrican 2000 is significantly cheaper than some of the other full tower comparisons. I will wrap up my thoughts of the Hurrican 2000 and this review in my conclusion on the next page.
